OS X :: Format Mac OS Extended (journaled)?

Jan 19, 2011

My computer was acting slow so I ran Tech Tool. It came up with various Volume errors but they were all fixed. I noticed that this computer was formatted as Mac OS Extended but NOT Journaled like the other two in our office. I was unable to add Journaling with either Disk Utility or Tech Tool. Both cases said that "Journaling failed" or "unable to add journaling". I believe I used to have journaling because I often use Onyx for repairing disk permissions and various other processes and this was the first time that I encountered the error "Not possible to verify the start-up volume because it is not journaled". I ran the Apple Hardware Check and the Hard drive is fine. So, after trying the previous mentioned utilities again to try and "journal", I decided to perform an Archive & Install. I am in the process of updating the OSX software, but I noticed the HD still says Format: Mac OS Extended...Hmmmm. Can anyone shed any light on this problem?

OS X :: Can't Format To Mac OS Extended (Journaled)?

Jun 26, 2007

I've got an external HD. The first part is formatted to NTFS. The second part was formatted to FAT32. I plugged it in via Firewire and went to erase it to a journaled filesystem. It did something and left the drive unmounted. I could only format it to FAT32. Any ideas why I can't format it to journaled? I want to backup my user dir.

Edit: Tried another drive. 2 fat32 partitions. I tried to format the first and it didn't work. Formats to FAT32 well enough.

Windows On Mac :: Bootcamp Demands OSX Journaled Extended?

Oct 12, 2008

Awhile back I made a Vista partition, shortly after I deleted the partition. I now want to make a new partition, but when I go through bootcamp to allocate space, it gives me an error saying i need to have a "Single Mac OSX Journal Extended drive.

The problem is, my drive shows up as Journal Extended. I would really like to not have to reformat my drive, as I do not have the CD's for all of my programs. Is there any way around this? I do have an external HD if necessary.

Hardware :: Formatting External FW Drives - Using Extended Or Journaled?

Jul 15, 2008

I've been having problems with 3 Maxtor 500GB 400/800/USB FW drives. They will randomly unmount themselves -- forcing me to turn them off, wait a minute, then turn them back on. There doesn't seem to be any pattern to when they unmount themselves. All three drives had been formatted using Mac OS Extended (Journaled), and I'm on the most recent version of Leopard.

Thinking I had 3 lemons, I called Seagate (who purchased Maxtor) for tech assistance. The tech guy told me that external drives should not be formatted using Journaled, only Mac OS Extended.

OS X :: Changing External Hard Drive From Journaled To Extended?

Feb 21, 2010

I just recently realized that my Seagate external HD is under Mac OS extended (journaled) and not Mac OS extended. I only want to use this device for storage/backup and don't want to run anything off of it. Is there any non-destructive way to change it to just extended? If not, what are some of my alternatives?

MacBook Air :: Extended Apple Care Plan?

Jan 9, 2011

First I would like to say hello to everyone and soon I will (finally) enter the Mac world. I've been a 50-50 type of guy (Apple/Microsoft) and I had the majority of the multimedia Apple products without actual Macs though. I was tempted to buy a MacBook before but I always wanted something sleek, sexy yet with a good sauce of performance since I am not a heavy usage type of guy and for gaming I will be getting a 360 Slim later on. Finally that day has come and I will be buying the ultimate 11". Question is, is it worth the extended Apple Care plan? I searched for answers on the official Apple site, googled up for a couple of days but I didn't find exactly what I wanted. Does it cover (for example) accidental damage? Or what are the real advantages of having an extended Apple Care plan? Since it will be my first Mac I will want to take extra care with it.

MacBook Pro :: Kudos - Extended Apple Care

Jan 9, 2010

My apple care ran out over a month ago and they still covered a video card problem in my Mbp. Anyone else get repairs done after coverage expired? I was having an aweful time trying to figure out why I couldn't get a good calibration when running external monitors. The card seemed to be working, but I guess whenbutvwas put under stress it failed. My mbp is at apple getting a new logic board, can't imagine what that costs. Plus my 30" cinema is getting a new hinge that would not tighten properly. Apple care is definitely worth it.

MacBook Pro :: SSD Degradation Over An Extended Period Of Time?

May 31, 2010

Hey everyone, so I keep seeing posts about how much SSDs degrade over the first week/two after using an SSD (one that comes WITH the MBP). However, how much do they degrade after...say....6 months-1 year (or even longer)? I know they are still new hardware, but I'm sure some people have an idea. Is it really THAT significant of a speed and performance decrease?

MacBook Pro :: Freezes After Extended Sleep Time?

Aug 14, 2010

I've been having my MacBook Pro freeze up on me after sleeping for around 20-30 minutes or longer. I open the lid, and it looks fine, then as soon as I try and do something I get the spinning beach ball of death. Then, I click something else, and it instantly gets the beach ball. Eventually I try the dock, which comes up, but then freezes and hangs as well, partially expanded.

Control+Option+Delete does nothing. Nothing at all. Not a single button does anything, the only thing that is responsive at any level is the mouse (now a beach ball), and it only moves. And that's it.

I have no peripherals hooked up, nor is my Safe Sleep mode activated (mode=0).

MacBook Pro :: How Long Does Extended Apple Hardware Test Take

Nov 25, 2009

I'm running one on my mid-2009 15" MacBook Pro with 4Gb RAM. It appears to be taking forever as it tests memory. It's been on Pass Number 2 for around 30 minutes now. The progress bar is either completely stalled or moving VERY slowly. Is this normal for the extended AHT? This is the first time I've run the extended test. I ran the quick test just prior to this one and it returned no errors.

MacBook Pro :: Can The AC Adaptor For Extended Periods While The Battery Is Fully Charged

Sep 17, 2010

"Does it harm the battery or reduce battery life, to use the AC adaptor for extended periods while the battery is fully charged?"Someone answered, "I would have to disagree with the others who say that it hurts your battery & reduces battery life by keeping your AC adapter plugged in with a full battery.I have done extensive research and asked many apple employees and have always come to the same conclusion. They all say to keep your laptop plugged into an power supply whenever possible. Only use your battery if you have to, in those times when you are not near a power supply.

MacBook Pro :: Automatic Graphics Chips Switching - Extended Battery Life

Apr 13, 2010

the new machines will switch between graphics chips. all very nice (at last), but my 15" MBP 2.8 doesn't and it's a real pain for me as I often go between apps than need the extra speed and then back to e.g. Word, and could really do with the extended battery life (I have the old style battery pack) any news if the older graphics systems can be worked to switch on the fly...i.e. without having to logout and shut down all the open apps, and work?

MacBook Pro :: Formatting External Hard Drive - Format Using Extended Or Free Space?

Jul 27, 2010

I just got my new Seagate 640gb external hard drive and am in the process of formatting it on my MBP. However, I am not sure which format to do? My main use for the hard drive is for transferring media files back and forth between my MBP and PC using just one partition on the drive. I already know I'm not supposed to pick 'Mac OS Extended (Journaled)' because I believe that is to use it as a boot drive. So should I pick 'Mac OS Extended' or maybe 'Free Space'?

OS X :: Creating A Partition In Mac OS Extended?

Oct 5, 2009

So, I am in the process of attempting to partition my disc so that I can boot windows XP.

Know that I am in no way even a capable mac user, so I might be a bit slow... sorry.

During the partitioning process, using boot camp, I get a message saying that I need to reformat my disc so that it is a single Mac OS Extended (Journaled) disc. So, I go to my Disc Utility, and it says it already is a Mac OS extended bla bla bal. So, my question is

Why will it not let me partition, and do I really need to reformat my everthing eventhough it already is in the format it wants to be in?

Mac Pro :: Apple Care Can't Be Extended?

May 1, 2010

I just called Apple about an iPod issue. When he told me that my iPod's Apple Care expired, I gave him my Mac Pro SN, and he helped with the iPod issue as a courtesy. So while on the topic, I thought to request an extension of coverage for my Mac Pro system (about $5k worth of hardware).

He told me that Apple Care cannot be extended. "So you just have to buy new stuff, huh?" I asked. He quietly replied, "Yes."

I cannot imagine having to buy $5k plus new hardware just to keep my equipment covered. Wow. Did I misunderstand him? Does anyone need some editing work done.

Hardware :: How To Get Dock On Extended Desktop

Jan 18, 2009

I just hooked up a Dell monitor to my MacBook. I will be using it in clamshell mode 98% of the time. I have the MB on the right side of the monitor. I want to drag applications back and forth between screens. Currently, I have to drag off the left side of the external. How do I drag off the right side of the external and onto the left of the MB? I don't want the MB on the left of the external on my desk. Make sense? When using both screens, how do I get the dock on my external rather than on the MB?

OS X :: Can't Format External Drive To Mac OS Extended?

Jul 8, 2009

I have the external drive formated as FAT of 1TB.

I have erasing all data whole day (about 20 hours) and formating as Mac OS Extended (Journaled) but at the end it reports an error.

Now, when I connect hard drive to my MBP it says "disk is not readable on this computer" - Initialize...

When i try to format as Mac OS Extended (J) it says: "Disk erase failed with error: File system formated fail"

I tried to format it on PC (Vista and XP) but they even can't see hard disk.

What should I do to get journaled formated external hard drive?
